'Mx' adopted as gender-neutral title for transgenders

(London Daily Mail) A council is to include the title ‘Mx’ on its official forms to be more accommodating to the trans-community.

Campaigners say that ‘Mx’, short for ‘Mixter’, is a gender neutral alternative to Mr, Mrs, Ms and Miss.

Brighton and Hove city council’s trans-equality panel previously pointed out that the gender part of forms allows people to say if they are male, female or other.

It said the lack of options in the title field does not provide for people who do not identify as male or female.
